Trip Planner: Europe / The Netherlands / North Holland Province / Amsterdam / Electric Ladyland - the First Museum of Fluorescent Art
Explore a different kind of art at Electric Ladyland - the First Museum of Fluorescent Art, the world's first fluorescent art museum, created by American artist Nick Padalino. Descend into a cellar and discover the atmosphere aglow in 1970s style, named after a Jimmy Hendrix album. The one-room, cave-like exhibit features multicolor diplays of fluorescent objects. In spite of its small size, the trippy experience tends to be memorable. The museum also features a large collection of rocks and other elements that naturally react to ultraviolet light. Look for the glass case full of gray stones that explode with flecks of electric color once under the black light.

Just advise to all out there if you want to visit make sure you book 2 hours in advance as they only have certain slots available at certain time. Found out on the spot on the door. We were not able..... more »
Coming all the way from the UK, we thought we would plan to see the Electric Lady. They were able to fit us in with no appointment and late notice. We had to take our shoes off and climb down into... more »
I would hardly call this a museum, but more of a viewing space with only one thing. It is a really small room that is really hot, and the photo shows exactly what it is. That is the only thing to see, but there also is a demonstration, and a viewing case filled with different things that are fluorescent. The stairs were soooo steep, slippery and small, so my whole family almost fell on our way down. The woman makes you take off your shoes and put on slippers, which didn't seem sanitary. My sister is claustrophobic, so we left early and didn't see most of the rest of the demonstration which I wasn't upset about, since it was so far boring. I would not recommend going to this place, because there are so many other things in Amsterdam that are much better than this. I have to admit, the art for sale was really cool, but pretty expensive. Overall, I didn't have a great experience, but I got some cool pictures, and was able to laugh about the whole thing after with my family.
You will find out the history of phosphorus matter and where it comes from. The color you will see is vibrant and beautiful. The use of it by artist's from very early time will keep you interested during the entire presentation. A Black Light treat.
